New York City: Judge Orders Orthodox Jew to Stop Holding Paid “Sex Parties” in His Apartment
He’s been ordered to stop not because of his disgusting degradation of the sacred and corruption of others, but only because his lease forbids commercial businesses.
AN ORTHODOX JEW has been openly holding so-called “sex parties” in his East Village apartment — and admitting anyone willing to cross his palm with $60, which, according to his Asian landlord, violates the terms of his lease.
An investigator for Womwoo Chang, the landlord, scoped out one of Adler’s August events and found a bouncer at the door, a bar on the rooftop and naked partygoers throughout the home, the landlord claims in his filing. Sangria was going for $8 a cup, while the marijuana cookies were $15.
Some of the “parties” have been so busy, the place is packed “to the point of overcapacity,” and the music has been loud enough to shake the walls of adjoining structures, neighbors said.
Adler lied to police, telling them he owns the building, and illegally parks his car at a hydrant, despite getting regular tickets, court papers claim.
The parties have resulted in multiple complaints from neighbors about the noise, visits from police, and violations for garbage piled up outside, said Chang, who alleges that Adler’s illicit use of the property could damage Chang’s reputation and that of the building.
“Years from now, people will shun the premises and refuse to have business dealings with Chang, if Adler’s lewd, loud, controlled substance infested commercial parties are not enjoined,” the landlord claims in court papers.
On Friday, a Manhattan Supreme Court justice ruled that 33-year-old Avraham Adler, a former student of Yeshiva Gedola in Passaic, NJ, must end the “fetish-filled soirees” at his 189 East 7th St. townhouse, the New York Post reports. The decision comes after months of complaints from neighbors and a lawsuit brought by his landlord, who said that Adler’s lease was non-commercial.
Adler, who also has a residence in suburban New Jersey, where his pregnant wife and three children live, reportedly charged $60 for admission to the “parties.” Per an Eventbrite listing for one of the gatherings, his home was billed as “a place without conformity to the mainstream.” The Jewish Daily Forward says the events “allegedly included group foreplay.” Adler claims he is a “devout Jew,” saying he refuses to even keep car keys in his pocket during the Jewish “Shabbat.”
“I want a divorce,” his wife, Shana Adler, told the Post Thursday outside the couple’s house in Clifton, NJ, home to over 1,300 Orthodox families and a large number of Jewish schools and other institutions. [See National Vanguard‘s other articles on Jewish expansion and takeover of entire neighborhoods in that state.] “He is not supporting us whatsoever. He’s cut us off completely. My friends are paying our bills.”
“I’m going through a separation and possibly a divorce,” Avraham Adler told the Post.
A neighbor fumed to the Post that “some guy has moved in here recently and I’ll wake up at 4 a.m. to what sounds like dozens of people running around, It’s out of control. When he’s not partying though, it’s hard to find him.”
The neighbor’s partner piped in: “We’ve had problems like this before. Nothing gets done until the cops come. People in this building, we don’t like calling them.”
In September, Adler actually denied that such “parties” were happening in his apartment, writing to the Post, “Not sure what you’re trying to gain from this nonsense,” Adler wrote, adding “I just don’t get this whole thing, no parties are going on.”
The openly-advertised paid “sex events” have been going on regularly since April at Adler’s apartment. One online ad billed the Adler’s residence as “the most luxurious playspace in the city for the naughty” and said that sex was “the cherry atop the cake of fetish play for us and many.”
